Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made Hiking Easier and Safe While at Ann Arbor REI last month, The Sales Associate named Megan was a great help preparing me for my first pair of Hiking Books and Pants. My husband and I were preparing for Easy to Moderate Hikes in Southern Utah. Megan was especially helpful to correctly suggest, size, and fit me. I am petite. About 9 days of various day hikes at up to 11,000 ft and 5 - 10 miles each day wearing these boots I was able to keep manage slippery rock situations and switch backs. Lightweight and flexible. Good ankle support when I needed it. I'm so pleased!!!! Thank you Megan and REI!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hiking boots. I bought these boots before going on a three day backpacking trip. I normally wear a size seven shoe but got these boots in an eight to account for swelling and toe room. I was a bit worried about wearing them at first because I did not have time to break them in before the trip. These boots surprised me however, because after the three days backpacking, I had no blisters and never even got a hot spot. They were extremely comfortable and performed wonderfully in streams and mud. I love these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy, supportive, and cute! I just finished an 11 mile hike with these shoes without even breaking them in! No blisters, no discomfort. They do stretch out a bit while wearing them so if they feel tight in the store don't worry about it. I did NOT buy mine is a half a size bigger (I'm an 8 and I bought an 8) I actually considered switching them for a 7.5 but I think having a little extra room will be nice if I wear thicker socks in colder weather. They are very light and have great ankle support. I got a lot of compliments on the trail as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight boot! I went to buy a very lightweight hiking boot and decided for this one. I decided to better go to the store so I could feel the boot instead of guessing the size and comfort. Good thing I did because this boot runs small. I'm a solid 9.5 size and had to buy in a 10. Definitely order 1/2 size bigger. The boots runs a bit narrow. For me is perfect because I have narrow feet but if you have wide feet beware of this boot. I only want the boot for short hikes in different terrains and I think this boot will last me a lifetime. It is very sturdy and has a good grip and yet it is so lightweight. I love it. Being lightweight was my priority because I have weak knees and can't stand heavy boots. I tried all boots listed in this site that are in the same category. The Merrell Moab is heavy sole, the Keens are too wide for my narrow feet, the north face was hard to put on, the Merrell Carpa felt good but it's more like sneaker and I didn't think would hold well on dirt and hiking on puddles. The anhu sugarpine felt like I could break my ankles hiking in the woods with them. Although most of those boots I tried looked nice this was best for me. Sturdy, comfortable, very lightweight, and good ankle protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots for low ankle bones I need low shoes or those that cover my ankle bones but don't obstruct my flexibility. These boots were great on a 5 mile hike with no breaking in, and then just as comfortable on the next 7 mile hike. Very pleased with the flexibility and comfort of this boot. And it is nice looking too. I got lots of compliments on the trail!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great recreational hiking boot A perfect boot for even or mildly rocky trails. It has a nice appearance, looking more like a walking shoe than a hiking boot so it's also nice for in town trail walking. I've had no heel slide or blisters. I tend to pronate and wear the heels on shoes unevenly but so far, after a long summer of hiking, the heels are holding up well. I hike mostly in canyons and mesas, some easy climbing, some off-trail. I would definitely recommend this boot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from To narrow, not substantial enough for me I loved the look of these boots (obviously not the most important thing but it's nice) so I hoped they would fit better than they did. I don't usually have trouble with shoes being too narrow but these definitely were. I considered going up a size but felt that they would be too long at that point. I also found them less substantial than other boots of the same price point - the sole/tread seemed thin, the toe isn't covered in rubber for durability, and they don't come up very high to support the ankle. If you're looking for a lightweight shoe for short day hikes only over easier terrain, these might be great! Especially if you have a narrow foot. But for longer hikes or rougher terrain, they didn't feel like enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forever loyal fan! I just did half dome in these in 9 hours and 40 minutes. I only wore them 3 other times and they did not do me wrong. Super supportive and comfy. Pretty decent arch support. Not once during the Half dome hike did they give me discomfort.

A review said these run small. I'm an 8.5 in sandals 9 in running shoes.  Should I size up to a 9.5?  I will be wearing them with hiking socks. Thank you.

Asked by: Kbskbs
We suggest ordering a half a size up from your normal shoe size for the Monolith Mid WP Hiking Boots. If you are a 9 in running shoes a 9.5 will work best for you in these hiking boots.

Just bought these in store in a size 10; I'm usually a size 9.5 in running shoes. After only a few blocks of walking in them I could feel a little rubbing on my pinky toe; will these stretch or would you recommend trying a 10.5?

Asked by: Reifan711
Depending on where your pinky toe is getting irritated, you may want to go a half size up or get a wider boot.

I regularly order Vasque footwear in a size 9, with reliably comfortable results. Should I stay with a size 9, or size up?

I am looking for day hikers that are light weight, breathable, and provide cushion and ankle support. I have a collapsible arch & narrow heel. I find my toes hurt when walking in hilly areas. Suggestion for a boot? They all sound good.

Asked by: Marsha
These boots are a good choice if you are looking for something lightweight and breathable that offers a lot of support.

I do daily 5-7 mile hikes in all Pac NW weather. I love the flexibility of my Merrell WP Capra Bolt, but I'm finding they just aren't WP (mostly the side where my foot bends). Will I run into the same with this because of the "mesh" style?

Asked by: Dailyhiker
These boots are waterproof and have the UltraDry lining to help keep your feet dry in soggy conditions even with the mesh uppers.
